Get trained May 4 on latest campaign finance rules

Every year, there are changes and updates to the campaign finance laws in Washington State. In advance of this year’s busy election cycle, and to help its affiliated unions stay current with changes to reporting requirements, the Washington State Labor Council will be holding a training on Political Action Committees and Separate Segregated Funds in conjunction with its COPE Endorsing Convention in May.

The “Get Smart” PAC/SSF training will be Friday, May 4 from 1 to 4:30 p.m. at the Hilton Seattle Airport Hotel, 17620 Pacific Hwy. South in SeaTac. The WSLC’s COPE Convention will be the following day at the Machinists Hall in Seattle. Presented by Jim Oswald and Dmitri Iglitzen, the labor movement’s campaign finance experts, the topics for discussion will include:

  • State Election Law – Reporting & Registration Requirements
  • What political activities are required to be reported to the PDC
  • Learn the simplest, cheapest way to comply with reporting requirements
  • Independent Expenditures and internal member communication explained

The cost of $100 per person includes all materials (no meals will be served). Space is limited so download the registration form and return it, along with your registration fee, by Friday, April 20. Please fill out a separate form for each participant and make your checks payable to the “WSLC.”

If you have any questions about the training, email Karen Deal or call her at 206-281-8901 ext. 27.
